Volga-Dnepr will Reduce Loading Time
While transporting two generators from France to Nigeria, Volga-Dnepr Airlines used the new loading system which allows to reduce duration of oversize containers loading from 4 hours to 30 minutes.
The 19-ton gas generator and 18-ton diesel generator placed in containers sized 920х260х290 cm were delivered from Châlons-Vatry Airport to Port Harcourt by airplane IL-76TD-90VD.
Application of Wing Lift system implying installation of wheels on standard anchor points and enabling safe winching of a container into the cargo hold by means of aircraft loading system reduces the loading time by more than 85%. This is already the second system of this type purchased by Volga-Dnepr Airlines for handling 20’, 30’ and 40’ containers.
Apart from delivery itself, Volga-Dnepr specialists arranged the cranes for loading-unloading activities in France and Nigeria, as well as the trailer to haul the generators to Châlons-Vatry Airport.
Transportation was requested by GEODIS Industrial Projects UK (logistics services provider) on behalf of a large oil and gas company.
